and go back to a more traditional offense. The pistol looks great with Colin Kaepernick running it but looks horrible when we do it. I think Martin Scales was on to something when he said that we needed to run a little more "downhill". Maybe if we get Drew Harris in and develop Trey Edmunds we would have the personnel to accomplish this. I would like for the coaches to try moving JC around a little bit to take advantage of his playmaking abilities. I think they should experiment with him a little bit in the slot ( I know he isn't very tall ) or maybe put him in motion and run some jet sweeps, or perhaps run him on wheel routes out of the backfield, and maybe even a sluggo route or two just to get him in space. I was pleased to see them use Dunn other than an extra Olineman and wonder what took them so long. We have the offensive personnel to have a balanced, clock chewing, keep your defense off the field offense that I believe you need to win big. Look at the top 4 in the BCS and you get the picture.
I agree. I think we need to get confidence back in our running game so we'll stop getting behind on down & distance. We put too much pressure on our passing game this year because of our highly inconsistent running game.
Also, someone please tell Logan to hand the ball off a little more out of the read option. By this point, everyone knows that play is a fancy, glorified QB-keeper.
It isn't the pistol it's us.
The Pistol is an improvement for most standard running plays. it disguises the direction of attack until after the snap, and gives the O a slightly better time advantage, since the D oppportunity gap is dusguised at time of the snap.
Dropping the pistol altogether doesnt help anything.
The read option, on the other hand, for a QB that cant make reads, that might be something else.
